awesome people - David Byrne

You probably know David Byrne from The Talking Heads. If you don't then what rock have you been living under ? He is not only a freaking awesome musician and subversive genius but an excellent human being.
I discovered his book, The New Sins, this past summer. It is pure genius and truth "The new sins are what we often mistakenly consider virtues"
Basically what society tells us to be and how to be is simply whatever fits the norms. Anyone outside of this box is abnormal. Norms shift so also is "sin" mutable. Yes!! Yes!!

Thank you Mr. Byrne, for being a masssively awesome human being. Also thanks for the Stop Making Sense soundtrack and My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, - a collaborative record with Brian Eno incorporating "found" voices such as radio preachers, talk show guests and Arabic singers -
And is by the way holy shit, fucking good!
